Ain't I a Woman
Pearl of Great Price


Round two using a sketch

I used the December sketch from the virtual scrapbook pajama party.  I will add this lo to my faithbooking album.

The butterfly border was a test that my friend Kathy was doing to show the 'Scrappy Chicks' the layered punch that she found on clearance.  I wouldn't let her throw it away (like Mikey...I'll take almost anything-lol).  I only used the top layer.  The same punch also made a solid background layer.  Cool punch.

December Creative Dare

The assignment from Tracy was to make an art journal page highlighting 5 values.  Once I started pondering the question it was hard to only put 5 on the page.

Journaling: FAITH, HOPE, LOVE, PEACE, Creativity

December Virtual Scrapbook Pajama Party

 For the December pajama party I used the sketch that Tiare posted.   I started off with different pictures.  Then I decided to use pics of me.  It is a part of my 'learning to love myself' work.  I am in the midst of a life change journey which includes weight loss.  For me a part of  losing weight  and growing emotionally is developing a better image of myself physically.  So I am taking pictures and scrapbooking every pimple, gray hair, wrinkle, fat roll, messy hair, paint splattered pajamas-JUST ME.  I am enjoying the journey of becoming what God already says I am.  I am fearfully and wonderfully made...I am working on the 'my soul does know it well' part.

 The star is glittered and embossed-really blingy (made up word, but give a year or so to make it into the dictionary-lol).  title: shining star

Mixed Media Layout

Limor's Mixed Media December challenge is to make a monochromatic lo.  This is my version .  I am really trying to learn how to blend the edges better.

Materials: gesso, black gesso, white paint, washi tape, canvas scallop, french script stamp, circle stamp, script stencil, silver scrapbook paper, pp scraps, perfect pearls spray.

Thanks for stopping by.  I hope you come again soon.


I AM an artist

God made 'The creative call..."All who are skilled among you are to come and make everything the LORD has commanded" (Exodus 35:10) I answered the call...I AM AN ARTIST.'

Thank you LORD for choosing me to be a creator of beautiful, inspiring things.  I accept the call and daily rebuke the negative voices of self doubt and worldly criticism.  

I like the background colors.  They look a little dark for the writing in the photo.  In reality you can see the writing much better than in the picture.  All a part of letting go.

In ALL things give thanks

Today in church the minister asked us to close our eyes and think of the things we were thankful for.  I began by thinking about my health, that I was no longer confined to my wheelchair, for my house...then suddenly I began to think about the fact that JESUS chose me.  He died for me!  That was all she wrote, I was overcome with emotion and gratitude.  Thank you God for sending your son to die for my sins.  Nothing else matters, because my name is written in heaven I can rejoice!

The Tracy W.'s November Creative Dare was about gratefulness.  I made this art journal page to express what I felt today and everyday.  I am thankful for a lot of things...I can't even count...

...but (sentiment) The thing that I am most grateful for is that HE knew me yet HE LOVED me...when HE was on the cross I was on HIS mind.
